A mutual love for prints and fabrics and the conviction that two is better than one made Annie Papadimitriou and Afroditi Zafeiri—the team behind AnnieP—join forces in 2015.
Annie Papadimitriou is the founder of AnnieP and an award winning printed textile designer. Annie studied at Chelsea College and the Royal College of Art in London and immediately after joined Roberto Cavalli’s renowned team of print textile designers in Florence. She has collaborated with a number of Greek designers introducing innovative print applications for both fashion and interiors. In 2011 Annie won a prestigious international competition for young designers by Ralph Lauren.
Afroditi Zafeiri joined the AnnieP team in 2015. Her background is in business with studies at Kings College London and London School of Economics. Afroditi worked for Issa London during the label’s early years and helped turn the company from an emerging fashion house to a global brand. Her love of commerce and fashion brought her to lead her family textile business in Athens where she further developed her appreciation for the world of fabrics.
AnnieP was launched in 2013 as a print-focused brand creating clothes based exclusively on Annie Papadimitriou prints. The brand got critical acclaim for its sophisticated and playful prints which filled a market gap. AnnieP clothes are sold in exclusive stores across Greece as well as Cyprus, London and Beirut.
